A New, Hybrid Material for Minimally Invasive Restorations in Clinical Use

Kurbad, Andreas / Kurbad, Susanne

Pages: 69-79

A new type of material consisting of a ceramic substructure infiltrated with a composite material - referred to as a hybrid ceramic - is currently being introduced for dental CAD/CAM use. The characteristic brittleness of ceramic is thus replaced by an elasticity resembling that of natural human dentin. The material features a high fracture load value of 2980 N, and is straightforward to process in CAD/ CAM milling machines. This article presents a case example describing the manufacture of a veneer restoration.

Keywords: CAD/CAM, ceramic, hybrid ceramic, feldspar ceramic, minimally invasive, veneer
